    I found this recipe to be a mess tbh. I was thickening the sauce for 2h (I’d call it more „something at least one level up than total water”). and at the end when i covered the chicken with it - it appeard there’s not enough to really cover all of it! Probably there are different medium size chicken breasts in different parts of the world!... well... come on

    The ingredients don’t marry up to the directions and the directions are terrible it doesn’t give a time for chicken to be in the oven and you have to put up with a conversation at the same time😡 why don’t you just give the ingredients and the the method without the other GUFF!

    Delicious! I cooked it completely on the stove top ... and it was perfect! I did tenderise the chicken breast and then cut into large chuncks to help with cooking time and it worked beautifully! Will definitely do this again!!

    Beautiful dish! I had some trouble thickening the sauce but it was so tasty! Would make again for sure!

    Made the original version with double cream. Used Quorn fillets instead of chicken, leeks instead of spring onions and added some Quorn bacon bits . My my daughter declared it the best meal she has ever eaten!! I'd say that's a success
